Lance “Un” Rivera and Vladtv discussed the inconclusive nature of the details surrounding the Biggie murder.
Lance reacted to Mob James pointing the finger at Suge’s former capo Poochie as the gunman but noted that he’s done his own research and feels confident he knows who actually did it.
The deaths of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. had a profound impact on the hip-hop community and sparked a broader conversation about the dangers of violence and the consequences of feuds within the music industry. Their legacies continue to influence and inspire artists to this day, and their deaths remain significant moments in the history of rap music.
Suge Knight and The Notorious B.I.G. (also known as Biggie Smalls) were prominent figures in the 1990s rap and hip-hop scene. Here’s a brief history of their connection:
Suge Knight, whose real name is Marion Knight Jr., was a record producer and the co-founder of Death Row Records, a highly influential record label during the ’90s. Death Row Records was known for its roster of talented artists, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Tupac Shakur.
The Notorious B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace, was a rapper from Brooklyn, New York. He gained significant recognition and success with the release of his debut album, “Ready to Die” in 1994, which showcased his lyrical skills and storytelling ability.
EAST COAST VS WEST COAST RIVALRY
The history between Suge Knight and Biggie Smalls is intertwined with the East Coast-West Coast hip-hop rivalry that emerged during the mid-1990s. This rivalry pitted artists from the East Coast, primarily represented by Biggie and his label Bad Boy Records, against artists from the West Coast, led by Death Row Records and its flagship artist, Tupac Shakur.
Tensions escalated following Tupac Shakur’s shooting in 1996, which he believed was orchestrated by individuals associated with Bad Boy Records, including Biggie Smalls. Tupac and Suge Knight had a close relationship, and after Tupac’s death in September 1996, the conflict intensified.
DEATH OF NOTORIOUS B.I.G.
On March 9, 1997, Biggie Smalls was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. The investigation into his murder remains unsolved, and there have been numerous theories and speculations about the circumstances and motives behind the killing. Some theories suggest a connection to the East Coast-West Coast rivalry, while others point to other potential factors.
Suge Knight has been connected to both the Tupac and Biggie cases due to his involvement in Death Row Records and his reputation for being involved in various conflicts. However, no concrete evidence has definitively linked him to the murders, and he has denied any involvement.
